Aaron Collier is a visual artist living and working in the most unlikely climate to actually preserve his work. Having graduated from air-conditioned Tulane University with an MFA in 2005, Aaron resides in New Orleans, LA with his wife, Kristen, and two sons, Camden and Ellis. He teaches drawing and painting at Tulane as an Assistant Professor and is honored to be involved with a fine bunch of artists in the Staple Goods collective and studios in the St. Roch neighborhood of New Orleans.
Recent exhibitions of his work include the Contemporary Art Center's Reverb: Past, Present, and Future and a solo exhibition at Staple Goods in August of 2015. Forthcoming in 2016 is a solo exhibition at the Carroll Gallery of the Newcomb Art Department at Tulane University. The Joan Mitchell Foundation generously sponsored a residency for Aaron at the Internatlonal Studio and Curatorial Program in Brooklyn, NY in June of 2015. Residencies have also been extended by The Ragdale Foundation, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, and the Joan Mitchell Center in New Orleans.
